‘Fin’Credible Bamboo Goldfish Beach Bar by Sri Lanka-Based Designer | Thilina Liyanage


Nowadays, architects and designers worldwide are unanimously moving towards using sustainable and natural materials to construct buildings. And when we talk of sustainable materials- bamboo is the primary sustainable building material that comes to our mind. It is highly efficient for construction purposes due to its flexibility, durability and attractive golden sheen. Sri Lanka-based 3D artist and designer- Thilina Liyanage also conceptualized a fantastic beach bar that resembles a goldfish and is structured with an underlying bamboo. The hollow part of the scaled-up model of a fish encompasses a bar and counter area, while the space right beneath the tail contains a seating area.

The Beach bar comes with a fish-scale-inspired golden fabric exterior that provides a fish-like appearance to the bar and provides partial shade on the inside during the day.


The lamps inside the bar brighten up during the night and give a unique diffused warm glow to the fish-like structure.


It seems like the goldfish is glowing at night, which looks even more alluring when viewed from the top.
